Описание: The New-York Historical Society's drawing collection is one of the earliest assembled in the United States, yet its trove of over 8,000 sheets and 75 rare
sketchbooks is surprisingly unknown. "Drawn by New York" presents over 200 highlights of the Society's vast holdings; a collection which spans six centuries, from 16th century avian
watercolours and a Dutch view of New Amsterdam (1650), to the facade of St. Patrick's Cathedral captured from inside Rockefeller Center by Richard Haas (2002) and representations
of the World Trade Center, both before and after September 2001.There are works by Thomas Cole, Albert Bierstadt, sheets by members of the Hudson River School, including 29
sketchbooks and 310 individual drawings by Asher B.
Durand, and a cache of 500 watercolours by John James Audubon. The main catalogue of featured works includes a
biography, selected bibliography and full technical entries on each work, and is followed by an essay on the historical and cultural significance of the collection.

Описание: This scholarly publication accompanies the first major exhibition held in Britain to focus on the more intimate types of Georgian and Regency portraiture. While
oil paintings and sculpture dominated the public arena of portraiture, more private portraits were being created for domestic consumption and display. Nearly two hundred works, drawn

catalogued within thematic sections on self-portraits, depictions of family and friends and commissioned portraits of the rising middle classes and the celebrities of the day.
two introductory essays by the co-curators Stephen Lloyd and Kim Sloan discuss aspects of the intimacy in viewing.
